Three decades of service
FABA has been serving bibliophiles and book dealers for more than three decades. When the organization was formed, fewer than two dozen book dealers joined. Today FABA is more than 60 members strong and is represented in every part of the state. From the very beginning, FABA was the presenting sponsor of the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair. The FABA Museum highlights some of the milestones in the rare book industry in Florida. Please visit us.
